Hey SP, I didn't know they made "The Rifleman" movie?
Ahh...Nope, just looked it up on IMDB and surprisingly this TV series never remade into a movie, which shocked the heck out of me... Probably no one in Hollywood today who could adequately fill the Chuck Conners role...
Went to check out whatever happened to Johnny Crawford who played Mark McCain? Turns out his acting career really didn't go anywhere after the TRM, except a couple of Kenny Rogers "The Gambler" movies.
He starred as Slim in the classic 1976 C-grade movie, "The Great Texas Dynamite Chase" which has the memorable description of:
"Explosive drama and action when two sexy girls go on a bank robbing binge." (CT Cuzs raising funds for a new horse barn?)
This feature film also starred Claudia Jennings, who's repertoire also includes the blockbuster feature "Gator Bait"....
Sadly, Johnny Crawford is reported to have Alzheimer's disease: https://www.promipool.com/celebritie...r-the-rifleman

Beau hates portable dishwashers, just looking at dam thing sitting in the kitchen...alone.

I had seen the above years ago--searching for it just now, I discovered this one too. But I don't think it is quite as good: |
Define the Multiverse. Give three examples.
What is opposite of "Time"?
The test proctor is an underpaid graduate student. Negotiate your final grade using any economic priciples. Be certain to rationlize any and all ethical, moral, and legal decisions.
Scientists have discovered that skunk spray, when applied topically, rejuvenates skin. Create a brand identity and marketing plan that positions this product as a luxury item.
Underneath your seat you will find a picture of an obscure superhero. Create a belief system complete with rituals, hierarchies, gospel, and prophecy.
Extra credit will be given to any student demonstrating practical application during the examination.
A two-dimensional circle has an area defined as the square of the radius multiplied by the constant Pi. A three-dimensional sphere has a volume defined as the cube of the radius multiplied by four-thirds and the constant Pi. How many circles does it take to fill a sphere with an equal radius?

I have encountered their writings from some of the WW1 chronicles where the young warriors had written letters home to their loved ones. Beautiful structure , choices of words and even the script was also some thing to envy. |
I may be wrong but the education then was a true Liberal Arts which was a basis for whatever the individual focus would be in life.

Modern educational theory has been pushing for not memorizing thing but to seeking them out by other methods but there's some stuff that really isn't immediately intuative for most people.
Now of course everyone has a portable device of some sort that obviates the need to have memorized almost anything. But when my middle stepdaughter was in the 8th grade and was 13 or 14 and in a different school system than the Seattle one she'd started out in she was have lots of problems with her math class. So I sat down with her to see what she was working on and realized that she couldn't multiply or divide and it was because she had never had (as I had to) memorize the multiplication tables to 12 x 12. (For the record I can't imagine how anyone can get along without knowing them but that's me! And I still can't do things on computers that a friends kid (8 year old) tried to show me how it worked.
At any rate--a couple of days later my stepkid got in trouble with her father about something and he told her to pick her punishment. She did--and I was kind of amazed because this kid who was the least scholerly of my three stepdaughters opted to sit in the kitchen and memorize the "times" tables.
And she did--and equally miraculessly her math problems pretty much evaporated that year.
But over the years as many times as I've seen that particular test (and I"ve seen it many time--seems to be a popular example--I couldn't pass that test. So I'm still in awe of and would have loved to have met some of the 8th graders that took and passed the test.
